Derek Nash and Janusz Carmello, Norwich
DAVID WAKEFIELD Nash, as fluent in front of the mic in rapport with the audience as he is with his musical ideas, is one of a number of underrated British players on the scene.
The second in the monthly jazz series, run by Jerry Brown, of Jazz 'n' Blues Records, was to have featured veteran American saxophonist Spike Robinson's Young Lions Old Tigers band.
Sadly, Spike died last year, but the “Young Lion” Derek Nash, decided to do the gig at Lakenham Leisure Centre, bringing in Polish trumpeter Janusz Carmello.
Nash, as fluent in front of the mic in rapport with the audience as he is with his musical ideas, is one of a number of underrated British players on the scene. His is a more familiar name with his larger band, Sax Appeal, in which he plays a slightly self-effacing role. On Friday, he was far more of a leading figure, and showed himself to be a powerful player with good technique.

Janusz Carmello, heavily influenced by Chet Baker, played both trumpet and flugelhorn, and proved an ideal partner to Nash. They received good solid backing from Ted Beamont (piano), Rob Rickenburg (bass) and Peter Cater (drums).
